What the future holds (The Gallery - week 10)
A break from training to focus on Tara's Gallery - week 10 already.
The theme this time round is to 'paint a picture of the world we live in'.
Now, this one appeals to my sarcastic streak. Funny that, I can already hear some of you saying.
I could post endless photos about the overweight young people I see around me who seem oblivious to a) the threat to their own health and b) the ever-increasing burden on the NHS.
I could post a photo of the chaotic commuter scenes I am faced with (nearly) every working day.
I could post photos of the Big Issue sellers that adorn London street corners, and contrast these with ones of the young children selling Globo biscuits in the middle of the motorway in Rio whilst the traffic is moving at speed.
I could also - at a stretch - post one of the volcanic haze we flew through recently upon our descent into Heathrow, vaguely reminiscent of the smog-imbued days of old.
Or I could post any photo of the cherubs as I look back at how much they have grown and wonder what the future holds for them.
Which brought me to this as my contribution for the theme:
Because despite everything, you never quite know what's around the corner.
(This photo is of Blossom and her uncle in Richmond Park taken three and a half years ago btw - and so much has happened since then)
